Autumn's Sentinel

This wooden longbow inlaid with gold leaves exudes a distinctly fey energy. The bowstring gives off a slight glimmer when drawn.

You gain a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with this magic weapon.

As a Bonus Action, you can transform the Autumn's Sentinel into dual swords. These swords act as two +1 shortswords, and grant +2 AC while wielded. The weapon remains like this until your Attunement with the Autumn's Sentinel ends, or you turn the swords back into the bow form as a Bonus Action. You must be wielding both swords in order to reconfigure the weapon back to bow form.

This weapon has been upgraded with druidic power. As part of an attack, it can fire one of several kinds of magic arrows:

  • Rogue's Arrow. The arrow penetrates into a iron (or weaker) surface and plants itself firmly. It is large enough to support a medium-sized creature crouching on it, and can support up to 200 lbs of weight.
  • Pugilist's Arrow. This blunt arrow does bludgeoning damage, but does not benefit from a critical hit. If a creature is reduced to 0 hit points by this arrow, it is immediately stabilised.
  • Watcher's Arrow (1/day). You can concentrate on the arrow as if it were a spell. While doing so, you can see through the arrow as if it were the source of an arcane eye spell. This effect lasts for one hour, upon which the arrow becomes non-magical.
  • Patriot's Arrow (1/day). Instead of making an attack roll, you choose one creature within 150 ft. of them. The arrow then seeks out the target, even around corners, so long as there is a possible clear path for it. The target then makes a Dexterity saving throw against your Spell Save DC, taking the attack's usual damage on a failed save, or half as much on a successful one.
  • Bard's Arrow (1/day). Instead of making an attack roll, you choose one creature they can see within 150 ft. That creature then makes a Wisdom saving throw against your Spell Save DC. On a failed saving throw, it is charmed by you for one minute. While charmed in this way, the creature regards you as a friendly acquaintance, and defends you if attacked. At the end of the target's turn, it can repeat the Wisdom saving throw. On a success, the creature is no longer charmed. If you or one of your companions attacks the charmed creature, the effect instantly ends.

  • This bow can be used as a Spellcasting Focus by Rangers, even if they do not have the Spellcasting Focus feature. In addition, Autumn's Sentinel allows you to cast the druidcraft cantrip at will.
